Chris Brown opens up about public scrutiny struggle


Singer Chris Brown has opened up about his struggle to face public scrutiny in the wake of his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown is currently three years into his five-year probation for the 2009 incident. Brown now says it has been a struggle to rehabilitate his image and knows he still hasn't managed to obtain the same level of personal success he achieved before the incident.

The singer tells MTV's "This Is How I Made It": "Having to get personal opinion back and having to gain personal success back ... it's not all the way back, you know? But it's one of my most humbling experiences. I can't hate people for making judgment on me or making a decision of liking me or not liking me. All I can do is try to be better as a person, and I'm good with knowing everything isn't always going to be perfect."

Brown hopes his fans will be able to take something positive from his story, adding, "I just want my fans to be able to identify, whether it be the ones that maybe could have had everything or they maybe blew their chance and they failed and didn't know how to get back up. ... My story or my life or my legacy can hopefully show them that once you're down, that don't (sic) just mean you're down forever. You never let up. A lot of the negatives that we always go through, we're gonna have to get through that. It sounds crazy, but that's what makes us who we are."

Brown was sentenced to community service and probation after the assault on Rihanna in a car after a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009.

So dress as the Taliban so Americans will like you? Buffoon.


Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

Chris seems to convey that it was some type of bad luck, an unkind twist of fate that brought him to his current situation. In the article  I did not detect any remorse for misdeeds, only that he has suffered a loss of  favor with his fans as a result. He wants to "rehabilitate" his image and recreate his previous success. How about his tendency to violence, personal assault, and respect for others?  Now there is where the "rehabilitation" should start.
